Khottie of the Week/ Music

f02a89f852271f0d422d793c411c69b3Welcome to the continuation of last week’s appreciation of fun-sized idols!  In this case, “idols” is going to cover both actors and pop stars.  And since I’m a little regretful that I didn’t put D.O. in the actor section, you guys get bonus D.O.


And the same warning from last week applies, not everyone on this list is 24+ years old.  If that bothers you, these are not the droids you are looking for!  Go be judge-y someplace else!

Turns out it is much more difficult to find lists of short actors, and since I’m a relative drama newbie, I didn’t have a vast library of people to pull from in my head.  When I asked Stephanie for suggestions of actors who’d be good for this list, her suggestion was Ryu Deok Hwan, from God’s Quiz and Faith.
ryu-duk-hwanI was unfamiliar with him, so I went and looked him up.  “Well, helllllo there!”  I obviously have some gaps to fill in my Khottie knowledge.  According to various sources, he’s 167cm tall, or approximately 5’6″.  Seriously, I need to go put a couple of his dramas on my list right now.ryu-duk-hwan-2

Unlike idols, its a little hard to find an actor’s height just laying around on a profile somewhere.  I had to do some looking.  From my list of dramas though, I pulled two fantastic specimens.  The first, Lee Hyun Woo.lee-hyun-woo_1435001937_lhw1His character, Cha Eun Gyeol, in To the Beautiful You, gave me the most epic case of Second-Lead Syndrome ever.  According to his official profile, Hyunwoo is 172 cm tall.  You can’t see, but I’m giving that number squinty, suspicious eyes.

The other gem? Im Siwan, singer for ZE:A, and one of the stars of Incomplete Life.  If you’ve watched it, you’ll understand I’m emotionally bonded to him after his role as Jang Geu admitted on Weekly Idol that the height of 175cm on his profile was not his real height  He looks tiny next to EXO’s, Chanyeol.bbqf0awceaaypg

I think these bedroom eyes make him look taller.  What do you think?

Moving on…  to another idol actor (because thats pretty much all I have on my list), is Lee Gikwang of Beast, who will forever be Pink Chicken (from Me too, Flower!) to me.074c04fb0852705ab847680794b439e2Gikwang’s official height is listed as 170cm, but based on videos and screen shots of him standing next to fellow celebrities with similar heights, he’s believed to be around 165 cm, or 5’5”.

Thats it for this week!  These theme posts have been a lot of fun to do, and I hope you’ve been enjoying them.  Expect more in the future!  Enjoy your weekend!
